05 January 2024

The JODY-W6 from u-blox is a dual-band wireless module with Wi-Fi 6E plus Bluetooth 5.3 (including Bluetooth LE Audio) communication capabilities - and is optimised for parallel use of these protocols.

It features an AW693 2.4GHz/5GHz system-on-chip (SoC) from NXP (which was released back in the autumn), with a 1.2Gbits/s maximum data transfer rate, plus sophisticated security and encryption functions. This automotive-grade module is supplied in a space-saving 13.8mm x 19.8mm x 2.5mm form factor, with either 2 or 3 antennas incorporated. It supports a -40°C up to 105°C operating temperature range. LTE filtering can be specified if required. Among the main applications for this unit will be vehicle infotainment, navigation and telematic systems. 

“JODY-W6 is a smart and reliable solution that helps overcome congestion and fulfills scalability requirements through its highly adaptable compact size. Specific use cases include support for AppleCarPlay and AndroidAuto, personalised entertainment, data off-loading and smart/roof-integrated antennas,” states Sebastian Schreiber, Senior Product Line Manager for Short Range Products at u-blox.
